Once we got to the ER, we went through all the options again...1) do nothing (biggest scar), 2) butterfly (second biggest scar and not good for active boy), 3) glue (smaller scar and not the best for active boy) and 4) stitches (smallest scar and best for active boy). My vote was stitches and the doctor agreed, so that is what he received...THREE STITCHES and we were home at 4:30 p.m. Missed the wedding, but had time to get ready to go to the reception at 6 p.m.
Before the accident, Seth was building a shed we purchased from Sam's club in our backyard that had to be finished that night, since it was going to storm and it would probably knock down what he built and ruin part of it. The walls were up with no doors and the roof needed to be built and put up before it rained. Seth wanted to go with us to the reception, but knew he needed to continue working on the shed. Finally, I said get showered and go with us. We will all help when we get home to get the shed built before it rains around 1 a.m. (that is what the weather site reported on the internet).
We went to the reception, and I saw friends I hadn't seen for three years. We had a great meal, CAKE (yummy) and wonderful company. We got home at 8: 30 p.m. and started on the shed with about one hour of daylight left. We worked together and got the shed done at midnight with flashlights in hand. The boys helped too. All of us got to bed around 1 a.m. and fell asleep quickly. I woke up due to the storm at 2 a.m. and look out at our shed standing tall and all enclosed. YAY! We did it! Whew!
Here is Tanner right after he got his stitches. He loved the blue camouflage bandage:
Here is the card I made on Friday (thank God I decided to create a day early) for the bride and groom:
I got this card idea from page 2 of the new SU! Idea Book & Catalog. I knew when I saw that card I wanted to make one similar. I used retired paper from SU! In addition, I used the All Holidays stamp set for the Mr. & Mrs. sentiment. Last but not least, I used the following for texturing the hearts punched with the XL Full Heart punch: Square Lattice Impressions folder, Vintage Wallpaper impressions folder, Petals-a-Plenty impressions folder and the crimper.
